In February 2011, the NII launched the NII Shonan Meetings, the first Dagstuhl-style seminar held in Asia. The purpose of the NII Shonan Meetings is to resolve various challenges in the field of informatics by assembling the very best researchers from around the world to engage in intensive discussions on issues in the field of informatics in an atmosphere that promotes close interaction. Kanagawa Prefecture provides the use of its facilities for these meetings.
The meeting's venue, the Shonan Village Center, provides an environment in which participants can focus on research activities in a setting that provides both spectacular natural beauty and easy access from Narita Airport.
